I like to focus on music with raw elements. I can Mix and Master-Lite as many tracks as needed, with as many revisions as needed to make your songs sound great. I do this for fun and the love of the music. Each project is a chance to help an artist make their recording into a song and their is no greater feeling than playing back the track after its done and the artist is happy. If nothing else know, I have the song's best interest in heart.
If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask.
I've been Mixing on and off for almost 10 years now. Done work at some studios, did some time in live Community Radio, ran live sound here and there, and managed a number of stages at festivals. Now i am starting to focus on Mixing records in my humble home studio as I start to build a craft. For what it's worth, I have a piece of paper that says I have a B.F.A. in Audio Production.

I've had Cork mix and master another track and I'm really happy with the finished sound. I definitely recommend cork to anyone who needs a mix or mastering engineer for any kind of rock.
Great guy to work with.
Great to work with! Cork listened to all my suggestions and did a great job with the overall mix and master.
Really good work and super easy to work with. I’ll have cork master more of my songs in the future.
Interview with Cork Capp Audio Co.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: As of now I am in the box using Pro Tools and Logic Pro. I am using an iMac with MBox interface, with Tannoy Reveal 501a Studio Monitors. For headphones i have a pair of AKG K272HD.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Spend time working with the bands tones and carve out EQ sections for each member of the band. Guitars and keys can be especially overwhelming if they are play a full spectrum of sound all at the same time. Also cut tones before you add tones.
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I earned my Bachelors in Audio Production in 2014 and have been working on an off every since. I interned at Clear Track Studios in Clearwater, FL and at WMNF 88.5 Tampa.
Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
A: My most common projects are a standard mix, usually of a few different tracks recorded separately in someone's bedroom or a recorded live set from the band's rehearsal space
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: The boys in King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard are always so inspiring with their steady work effort and varied style.
Q: What's your typical work process?
A: My ideal session would be me doing an rehearsal room multi-track recording where the band plays LIVE. Then with the main track recorded live do a few passes of overdubs (vocal , solos, etc) Then spend a couple days mixing the record. As a practice i provide a "running" master on all work so that you have a competitive level on your mix right away.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: I have a wide taste in music and with each project can pull inspiration from a lifetime of great music.
